The walking stick has earned its place in history. Every culture in human experience has utilized it in one form or another. To pay homage to this tradition and provide you with a quality tool, Cold Steel® presents the Walkabout.
Fashioned entirely in the United States of second growth hickory specially selected to be free of all knots or flaws, the Walkabout is a prime example of the pride Cold Steel's craftsmen take in their work. With a length of approximately 38", a weight of 24 ounces, the Walkabout provides a sturdy balancing aid for traversing rough, slippery or uneven ground. It also serves as a pointer, probe, lever and in emergency defensive situations, a weapon.
Each Walkabout is lathe turned from a 2" thick hickory blank which is then carefully sanded and clear coated to protect it from the elements. No other American hardwood is better suited for this purpose than tough, durable hickory which stands up to continuous use and hard knocks. Every Walkabout comes complete with a brass plated ferrule which protects the stick from cracking or the excessive wear associated with concrete sidewalks and city streets.
